These photographs are of Dr. Arthur E. Hertzler. Arthur Hertzler practiced medicine in Halstead and became known as the "horse and buggy doctor." He was born on July 22, 1870, in Iowa and moved to Kansas with his parents when he was still a child. Dr. Hertzler graduated from Southwest Kansas College in Winfield and from there went to Northwestern University Medical School in Illinois. After earning his medical degree, Hertzler came back to Kansas to practice. In 1902 he established the Halstead Hospital. While maintaining his practice in Halstead, Hertzler taught pathology, histology, surgery, and gynecology at the University Medical College in Kansas City and later at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. In 1938 he wrote the Horse and Buggy Doctor, an autobiographical account that also documented the medical methods of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. After more than 50 years Dr. Hertzler retired in February 1946, and later died on September 12, 1946. Digitization funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission through the Kansas State Historical Records Advisory Board.
